The land is level to gently sloping, and arranged into small to medium sized enclosures, with various watering points from natural sources. The private water well supplying the yard and fields is located near to the eastern boundary. Should the property be split up (as per noted on the schedule of acreage) then the private supply will need to be retained with lot 2. The land is down to permanent pasture, and is naturally wettish in places, but capable of growing grass all year round. Boundary fencing is for cattle. On the southern boundary, a private track leads to a number of properties, and the fields bounding with the track have a right of way to access them, which makes it easier for harvesting purposes.
The homestead totals to some 1.19 acres with the balance as pasture. A disused path crosses OS No. 1434 in an east to west direction, and was probably used as a shortcut in days gone by, but is not used now.
